Last Thing Thursdays

4 Oct

It’s Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday, which means today is a good day. Take my advice and just go with it, deal? Okay good!

The Last Thing…

I Made. This One Earth Chia Chia Coconut Cookie Mix

Holy was it good! You know me, I like to bake, but it is almost always from scratch. I was a little bit skeptical about these wheat free cookies, but my goodness was I wrong. They were delicious. They had a slightly different texture than a regular cookie, but it was by no means a bad thing, they were moist and chewy, packed with fiber, and had great flavor . Not only will I make them again, I can’t wait to try more One Earth products, specifically the Banana Quinoa Granola Bar Mix.

I Wanted to Make. This!

Pinch of Yum‘s Butternut Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Bacon, Caramelized Onions, and Apples. Enough said!

I Downloaded. The VSCO CAM App. And let me tell you it’s worth every one of the 99 pennies it cost. Here is a before, and after of a photo I took.



You really want those carrots, I know you do! The VSCO Camera app has quite a few more settings, and editing capabilities in comparison to other camera apps I have used. I was able to edit this photo, save, and then upload it to Instagram without adding any additional filters. I think I am in love.

I Ogled on Etsy. The On Your Case Store

How Cute are these iPhone cases, I want at least 6 of them, that’s normal right?

Thought was Genius. Thanks to Ashley, my coffee will never go cold again.

Use a candle warmer to keep your coffee or tea warm, genius I tell ya!

I Pinned. This beautiful home.

The ceiling is absolutely amazing, so rustic. I dream of having a home like this! Speaking of homes, Diary of a Jewell is giving away two pairs of tickets to the Vancouver Home and Design Show, Oct 11-14. Head over to our Facebook Page and share it for a chance to win, contest ends tomorrow!

I Was Looking Forward to. Today!!! Why you ask? Because I am so excited to see Carrie Underwood in concert.

Yes, I have seen her before, but who cares?!

I hope that the evening you have planned is as enjoyable as mine! It’s all a matter of opinion right?! If not, well…revel in the fact the weekend is almost here!



Monday Morsels

16 Apr

It was a big weekend kids, there were concerts, life milestones, near death experiences and as usual plenty of fun!

Drum roll please…this past weekend I became a real life homeowner. Yes, real life. Andrew and I are now the proud owners of a dated 1 bedroom apartment. Not to worry about the dated portion because we are going to turn dated into awesome! With the possession date quickly approaching in early May we have plenty of work to do, but I think it is safe to say we are up for the challenge. Sadly, I think I think this life milestone makes me an actual grown up…weird!

Shortly after becoming a homeowner I nearly died. Insert gasps here. I might be exaggerating, but a beautiful day snowboarding in Whistler could have turned ugly when my clumsy self caught an edge on a cat track and fell down the side of a steep embankment. I would like to thank the metal sign and then the tree I hit for stopping me from plummeting down the mountain. It was greatly appreciated. Oh and the boys I was with, for dragging my ass back up the hill, they had me out of there faster than I could say I was okay. I did however redeem myself, after a beer and a break I carved the shiz out of the mountain…well kind of. Check out the amazing bluebird day we were able to enjoy.

The rest of my clan stayed in Whistler for the remainder of the weekend but I headed home on Saturday afternoon to go to the Johnny Reid concert with the Lilinator. I bought her the tickets for Christmas not knowing it would be a bit reminiscent of seniors center inside the Pacific Coliseum. Despite the abundance of “mature” attendees I had a great time. He put on an awesome show and I really enjoyed it. I also really enjoyed the people watching, insert aggressive middle aged woman dancing her heart out in front of me here.

Happy Monday!
